HS:MS - Thoughtful

Absorbed in or involving thought.

Now the kids are back at school I will have to remember to look at the prompts before they leave the house. I really could have done with one of them this morning to use as a model but no the house is empty. Not really sure that reptiles think so a houseful of them doesn't help and there is NO WAY I am going to do a self portrait if I don't have to! Which left me with what I was being thoughtful over today. The first one is of what I can see while I sit here pondering what on earth I can take a photo of today.
.

The second one is of Kyle ready for his first day of High School which should make him think and has definitely made me think - where have the last 11 years gone? The silly red joker smile round his face is where he thought, unbeknown to me, that it would be clever to have red milk not realising that the food colouring would stain his face. I was so tempted to not tell him and let him go to school with it still there but being the responsible parent I am it got scrubbed off. The face pulling is due to me taking pictures and is actually the most sensible one that I managed to get.

Must be a boy thing that they HAVE to get the red around their face. My boys have it off to perfection.

Hey, before you know it, you'll be using that photo of Lyle on a slide show of his 18 years. Truly, it goes so fast, mind you, I don't think they ever stop doing the silly things, not even when they're middle aged.

Kids! Don't you just love em!

Love this photo, its just SO cute. First day of high school pics are always so amazing to look back on, to see how they changed over time.

Eleanor is right, I don't think they ever properly 'grow up' my two are still silly, especially when it comes to having their photo taken together and they are 17 and 18!

It's nice to know that I'm not the only mother who has boys with colored rims around their mouths. Well, not at this very moment, but I've been there many times. Has to be something in their DNA, that's all I can think of. LOL
